Keto Friendly Flours

Keto Friendly Flours

Almond Flour: 11 grams fat, 6 grams carbs

Almond flour can do it all. It’s the all-purpose flour of alternative flours. Since it’s great for both baking and cooking, you’ll probably find yourself reaching for it most often. Its subtle flavor won’t take over the taste of your chocolate chip cookies but instead add a welcome something extra.

Chia Seed Flour: 15 grams fat, 18 grams carbs

Chia flour is a great thickener, making it the perfect alternative to flour in sauces or soups.

Chickpea Flour: 1.5 grams fat, 13 grams carbs

Chickpea flour is commonly found in gluten-free flour mixtures and works well for those who have nut allergies. It’s a great binder for mains like burgers or falafel. And even though it leans more savory than sweet, it can be used in baked goods, too.

Hazelnut Flour: 12 grams fat, 8 grams carbs

Hazelnut flour isn’t used nearly enough. Try it as your secret weapon in a keto pie crust. It add a deep nutty flavor that takes almost any dessert from good to great. But keep in mind: The flour can make things a bit dry, so extra butter is recommended.

Coconut Flour: 4 grams fat, 18 grams carbs

Coconut flour can be a tricky substitute, so it works well mixed with another flour, like almond flour. It will help your baked goods get the flakiness that can be so hard to achieve in gluten-free or keto baking.

Walnut Flour: 20 grams fat, 3 grams carbs

Walnut flour is great when you want some texture. Its texture is more like cornmeal, and the flavor will definitely be present. Try using it as a “breading” (like on chicken) or when you’re baking, as long as you combine it with another flour.
